Hey, everyone. ^_^ Since there's always a variety of threads made by a multitude of people, asking the same questions more often than not about "Sailor Moon," I figured that I'd go ahead and make an official FAQ thread for it to make it easier in terms of search wise in this forum. ^_^
NOW, I just have to go and ask the editor to sticky it since I can't. ^_^
But anyway, just leave all of the questions in here and I (or others) will answer them!
Sailor Moon Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are Sailor Uranus's eyes really green?? I'm having trouble finding for sure!
A: This dispute has already been more or less clarified within another thread. Regardless, no, her eyes are NOT green, but a very dark blue. The only reason I could understand that people would believe them to be green, would be because of an animation error within the anime (that perhaps a "goof" had been made within an episode, where her eyes had been colored green instead of the dark blue that they actually are in both versions -- anime and manga). Sailor Neptune/Sailorneptune is the one with the turquiose or cyan colored eyes, which is a shade mixture of both blue and green. Perhaps that is where the confusion has stemmed from.
For further "reassurance," this picture showcases Sailor Uranus/Sailoruranus's blue eyes:
Q: Why isn't there a Sailor Sun?
A: It has never been officially dismissed, this question, as it has also never been officially confirmed, either. The only thing known for positive is that, while Ms. Takeuchi had never created an official Sailor Sun/Sailorsun (or at least, had never debuted one), she'd set it up within the final (unaired in the U.S.) season, Sailor Stars, where the possibility or speculation that there are far more Sailor Soldiers than just the nine we've known, and from other parts of the galaxy, is established.
So, while a Sailor Sun/Sailorsun had never actually been mentioned within the series, there could have been one.
Q: Was there ever a Sailor Earth?
A: Not within the conventional sense, no. That is, a female scout/senshi designated with that title, etc. But this was because Darien/Chiba Mamoru (or Tuxedo Mask/Tuxedo Kamen) is the prince of Earth and endowed with its protection, guardianship responsibilities and its divine powers. (i.e. The Golden Crystal.)
Q: What episode did Sailor Mini Moon become an adult, and Sailor Moon became a child?
A: The original is episode 158 (total) of the Super S arc, "Pegasasu no himitsu! Yume sekai wo mamoru bishōnen" ("The Secret of Pegasus! The Handsome Guardian of the Dream World.")
And the dubbed version is episode 31 (of the same arc), "Pegasus Revealed"

And, to further "reminisce," this site is great for highlighting every season:
Q: People keep talking about PGSM. What is that?
A: "PGSM" stands for "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon." It was a Japanese live-action drama series that had aired from October 4th, 2003, to September 25th, 2004 and primarily focused upon the five Inner Senshi and the first arc within the series (Queen Beryl, etc) and relied more upon the manga version rather than the anime. Total, there were 49 episodes, in addition to a special that focused upon the "making of." It's the live-action drama version of Sailor Moon.

Q: Why doesn't CN bring back Sailor Moon?
A: Due to a lapse in licenses that were never renewed, it had to be pulled from air. And as of May 2004, everything else in relation had gone off air in any/all English-speaking countries for the same reason (lapse in licenses and lack of renewal).
And as for the English manga or comic from Tokyopop, there are all now out of print (as of May 2005) for the very same reasons, as well. Whether or not both occurences will ever change, it is still up in the air.
Q: If Sailor Stars wasn't brought to America, how come "Eternal Sailor Moon" is pictured on American merchandise?
A: Technically, this is false, because the final arc, Sailor Stars/Sailorstars has been brought to America, but within the manga form. And because of this release by Tokyopo until May 2005, that is most likely the reason why anything in relation (I.E. Eternal Sailormoon) has been advertised throughout the States ever since.
In contrast, however, the anime, while never dubbed for reasons already known, it has been aired in other Western areas and markets nonetheless, though (i.e. Latin America)
